This is my second time to your site. Ironically after a search on drug abuse, I automatically clicked on your site out of thousands. This time I've put it in my favorites and will refer to it often.
I have a son with drug abuse problems. This site reminded me that it's not my fault and reminded of things I need to do for myself. We have been letting him experience the
pains of what the abuse is doing, but he still doesn't seem to get it. Hopefully, he will soon and will want to get the help he needs.
Keep up the great work. As others have said, this is truly like someone is talking with
you on a personal level and very, very helpful and informative. Thanks.
I'm still on the first page and I can tell its a good site...thanks!!!!!
I am a Personnel Officer and thank you for the all the hard work in producing this site. It is a wonderful tool for me to learn from and given me so much help in being able to formulate a policy for my Company. Congratulations to all involved.
THIS SITE IS VERY GOOD. THIS DISEASE KNOWS NO BOUNDRYS. ANY TOOLS I CAN USE ARE VERY HELPFUL.
Thank you, Thank you!!!
I happened to be looking for Treatment sites in another city for one of my clients and found you.
I am the Program Coordinator of an Intensive Outpatient Program at a hospital in ********, *******. I am constantly looking for sites that are informative as well as easy to access and work with, and, your site surpassed my expectations.
Thank you for the time you have put into a very professional and informative site.
This is better than sitting in the science class!
Just wanted to drop a line to tell you that you have got an excellent web site! Tell everyone involved in it's creation that they did a great job! Keep up the good work in the addictions field as well.
I am 18 years old and my father has abused drugs and alcohol his whole life. About three weeks ago, my brother and I found him in his apartment dead.
He was prescribed high dosages of methadone and other medications that were found in the autopsy to be too high of dosages. It has been a lifelong problem that he has had, and his parents died from. I am interested in starting something to warn people about the deadly affects that certain drugs and alcohol can have on a person.
My father was only 45. He bragged to his friends that if they were on that high of medications (that doctors actually gave him willingly) they would die. How sad to live a life taking so much medication thinking that it will hide the scars that hurt so much in your life. Why not find an alternative to medication. The reason I'm am writing this is so maybe I can do something to save one other family from having to go through something like this.
How sad is it to lose your father at 18. As well he left behind my 20 year old brother and his 10 month old son that my father adored. He thought he had no friends. But at his funeral, he had over 700 people that loved and adore him show up. He was a lonely soul looking for an easy solution to hide his pain - pain medication and drugs.
Thank you so much for your web site! It was just what I needed today! I have a son who is a heroin addict and I just needed reassurance that my tuff love was right.
Thanks so much - keep up the good work!
Hi, you're website is really interesting!
I'm 16 and finally realised that you can have a great time without drugs or alcohol!
That's all I gotta say!
See ya all again! THANKS
Your site was enormously helpful to me when we were going thru the worst times of my son's addiction.
Things are much better now. He is on probation, and is passing his drug tests every time. He's working very hard at his job as a cement finisher. He has no contact with the people he did before. He's living with his girlfriend, (can't say I approve of that, but oh, well....)
I can't say for sure that his addictive behavior will never recur, but things are looking good for him, and I hope he's on the right track.
I'm gonna keep your site bookmarked, and will recommend it to anyone who needs the kind of help and guidance which I found there.
Congratulations on a wonderful web site. I am currently studying on a nursing degree and hoping to work in this field after I qualify. I was browsing the internet looking for inspiration for my research dissertation - You are truly inspiring!
Thanks for all the information - hopefully I will put it to good use.
I have read your information, and I have gained some valuable insight into the problems of drug use, and how to cope with people who have a problem.
Thanks for a good website.
Your website is excellent. I'm going to be a representative at a national youth conference on drugs. Due to your website, I'm more informed on drugs and can contribute a greater deal to the conference, which may lead to helping the teenagers with drug problems.
I really found your website useful. It described my son to the 'T'.
I am a recovering alcoholic and so is my husband, so a lot of this I knew but needed to see again to remind myself to quit enabling my son. You have a very nice site and I added it to my favorites.
Thank you again.
I just want to congratulate you on a absolutely brilliant website. Without wanting to go into too much detail I have been going out with someone who is a drug user and I couldn't understand why he was being so hurtful and abusive - physically and verbally - to me. I had some knowledge that drug use would play a part in this but I found myself blaming myself for his actions.
After viewing your website I can understand why he was acting the way he was. Your website has made me realise that I have to stop blaming myself and stop making excuses for him and although it will be hard, I have to walk away from him because he will not let me help him. Your section on helping someone to come off drugs made me realise that the only person that can help him is himself.
Anyway I just want to round it up and say that all the sections on the website were brilliant, the layout was excellent and easy to follow and understand the information was spot on and I particularly liked the teen section where you had to put your own name in - this made it more personal.
Keep up the good work.
I'd like to say that your website is one of the best. u did a brillant job guys, its really good. Thanks for such a caring, personal and informing website.
I'm a student nurse studying at Bournmouth University and currently researching for info on this area to support some family and community visits that I've had to do. Thought your page was great, very interesting, with loads of interesting links to help others.
What a great site. It was very helpful and down-to-earth.
I'm 19 and have only recently admitted to myself that I have a problem with alcohol abuse.
The site has helped me to realise that I am not on my own. I have just started counselling which is helping, but cutting down the alcohol is really hard and making me unhappy. I'll try out your ideas and see what happens.
I will get over this and your site is helping me on my way.
I really like this website and I would definitely inform my Teacher about this website.
And from this, i've learn alot of things !!!
I stumbled across your page, ironically drunk and stoned at the time. I have been for quite some time now. Two days before the millenium to be even more precise. The world prepares for the biggest party ever EVER and my dad celebrates too hard watching the Tigers play rugger and dies of a heart attack at the game. blah, blah, blah 6 months later, mind numb, body COMPLETLY empty. Fathers day. . . . . . tick, tick, tick, TICK, TICK . . . . . . BOOM!!!!
Well not quite but you can imagine the state I was in. Needed help. Needed to stop
Can't remember how but found your page, and must have been inspired. Three days later talking to Alcohol Relate group in Leicester. Very helpful indeed. Made me realise I didn't have to do a 'Phil Mitchell' and could simply cut down, and thats just what I've
Losing your father is like no other pain, amplified more so because I am only 25. But you can't piss your pain down the drain, God knows I've tried.
Anyway like I've said I have cut down, feel much MUCH better and I would like to thank you for your help.
My cousin recently died from drug abuse, despite coming from a good home with lots of support. We all tried desperately to stop him taking drugs.
I am now determined to find out as much as I can about drugs and join as many groups as I can to help put a stop to drug abuse and prevent other families around the world grieving for a loved one who has died in this way.
Yours is a great web site - keep up the good work.
I am a health worker working on a small island in the Indian Ocean. I am actually looking for ideas so as to do some IEC material on alcohol for my country.
I am very impressed by your website and it has been really of great help for me. Hope you continue the good work, it is also really encouraging and inspiring to other health workers like me and give us hope for a more drug conscious population.
I have to say that this is a great job you have done and I would like to thank you very nuch for all the work you have put in to this website.
Unfortunately one of my best friends is in the Deep water and I don't know how to help him. Until now I have just tried to get as much information as I can about these drugs. Your website helped alot.
I wish only you had some pictures from the end of this road he has taken and maybe then I could show him what all this turns out to be like. Maybe then he would wake up.
This web-site is excellent. I have a partner who I think has a problem but I'm not sure and was looking for information. It is all here. Many of my questions have been answered and the 'help for you' section has been extremely useful.
Thank You - I feel a lot better for having read this.
I am a student at a University in the United States. I do not take drugs and abuse alcohol myself, yet this site has helped me learn more about what is going on around our world. I have learned more drugs in this one setting then I have in a life time.
Great website. Thanks for the good advice. I've worked a step program in the past, and this brings it back. I've found out that the help from the programs never leaves you even when you leave the program.
Thanks a lot.
I am a faculty member in a university in *********. I am married and have 4 years old daughter. My wife always complained about my alcohol use since the beginning of our marriage. However, her complaints increased by time and finally by claiming that I am an alcoholic she opened a suit for divorce. But, she ceased from the suit and she and my daughter are now in a one-month holiday, and I am already alone. I increased the amount
of alcohol I used. However, I found the opportunity to evaluate my position. I am convinced my self that I am an alcoholic though not heavy. I only use alcohol during night. This does not mean that I deny my alcohol abuse. Now I promise that I will give up alcohol abuse. I believe that I do not need professional support for doing this. However,
if I fail, I will experience professional support.
Thanks for valuable advices in your web site.
Having just visited your website, I would just like to congratulate you on a site that has easy to understand information for someone like me who as a parent is looking for answers.
As a member of a newly formed Drug Family Support Group (DAFS) who until recently was extremely naive about drugs and their culture. I am always looking for information and ways of helping other people in the same situation as myself.
